Wiped :-BlackBerry’s Current share of the global smartphone market is officially 0%

It’s the end of a beautiful era with BlackBerry’s share of the global smartphone market is now 0.0%, as BlackBerry sold 207,900 devices running its own operating system, but we never thought it might as well have been zero.

Anyway, a contrast with other platform shows a whopping 352.7 million phones running Google’s Android operating system were sold in Q4 2016, making up 81.7% of the market, according to Gartner. Apple’s iOS, stood the second place with sold nearly 77 million units in the quarter, with 17.9% of the overall market share. Also Windows OS still had a tiny market share of 0.3 percent.

Alex Thurber, senior vice president of global sales, told the Financial Post in January. 

“I want to make sure that our customers and users don’t get concerned that we’re not continuing to support and invest in BB10 because we absolutely are.”

In a statement, a BlackBerry spokesperson said: 

“As has been widely communicated, our current strategy focuses on providing state-of-the-art software and security for enterprise and devices. As part of this aggressive pivot to software, we have shifted away from hardware and toward a licensing model where partners develop hardware and distribute and market the BlackBerry brand. We are very excited about the new BlackBerry branded smartphones that our licensing partners – TCL, BB Merah Putih and Optiemus – will soon be introducing.”
